Sail Date: Aug 2018
Cabin: Veranda Suite
Pool deck too small for us.

This was a 7 day cruise, not sure why CC showing an 18 day voyage? Anyway, we have cruised quite a bit, mostly on Silversea but also have dabbled on Celebrity, HAL, RCCL, Paul Gauguin and Azamara. As much as we have liked SS, there were a few things lacking and we wanted to see if Seabourn is more our taste. So we booked this trip primarily to try out Seabourn as we have done the Med several times before.

EMBARKATION DAY:

For the first time ever, we flew in same day as embarkation. Risky I know since it was a transatlantic flight from Florida to Rome, but all worked out ok. SB was there to pick us up. Although it took over an hour to finally leave the airport on the bus because of some issues with Rome airport personnel not being very helpful with a couple passengers that needed wheelchairs. Trip is about an hour to Civitavechia port, bus broke down in the middle of the highway. Finally after about 20 mins, the driver was able to get us on our way. Upon arrival at the ship, check in was super easy and fast. Cabins werent ready yet, so we grabbed lunch at the Colonnade which was delicious and then we explored the ship.
